1 ½ teaspoons Champagne or white wine vinegar
2 pounds cauliﬂower, base leaves and cores removed, cut into large pieces
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
Fine sea salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
⅓ cup plus 1 tablespoon canola oil
⅓ cup lightly packed Italian parsley leaves, ﬁnely chopped
½ teaspoon minced garlic
½ cup dry-cured black Beldi olives
- Add 1 teaspoon of the vinegar to salted boiling water and cook the cauliﬂower until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the cauliﬂower to a baking sheet to cool.
- Combine the mustard, mayonnaise, remaining vinegar, a pinch of salt, and a few turns of black pepper in a bowl. While whisking, add the oil in a steady stream to make a creamy dressing.
- Cut the cooled pieces of cauliﬂower into large ﬂeurettes or thick slices and arrange on a serving platter or individual plates. Spoon the dressing over the cauliﬂower. Combine the parsley and garlic and sprinkle over the dressing. Scatter the olives on top.
